Pet Spotlight: Ice & Big Mack

The name “Ice” might reflect her frosty blue eyes, but her sweet personality will melt your heart. This pretty little girl loves nothing more than to run laps around the yard, take long walks, and play with doggy toys. Ice is a beautiful 18-month-old Hound mix with a snowy white coat adorned with light brown across her ears and left eye. Pair that with her clear blue gaze, and you have a winning combination. She is never short of energy, so she’ll want a large fenced-in yard. And although she loves meeting new people, she’s not very fond of cats, so she’s looking for a home without kitty siblings.
